JBL CONTROL 1
Advantages: Superb sound quality
Disadvantages: Can't really thino of one
I bought a pair of JBL Control speakers around eighteen months ago now. I have had JBL speakers before this and I was impressed with the quality and used them when I lived on my own. These cost me £68 for the pair and I bought them online. They were available in either white or black but I opted for the white as they look far better in our house with our decor and I doubt my other half would have approved of white speakers.
They are currently placed on my bookshelf, on either side as they are small and compact, yet despite this, in my opinion, they produce brilliant and powerful bass and treble quality. There was the option to attach these speakers to a wall mount or a bracket but I decided against this as this wasn't the look I was going for, and despite this I also use them for added volume when we use our home cinema system, so I like the fact that they are portable and I can move them about.
The exact dimensions are 227cm x 130cm x 140cm and personally speaking, these dimensions are exactly right for my bookshelf as they do not look at all obtrusive. I personally think they are just as suitable for the home user or the professional user and I have taken them to friend's parties when we have wanted some good strong powerful noise with high quality and friends have also said how impressed they have been with them.
Whe I bought these speakers they came supplied with wall mount brackets and grills, so that it handy for anyone to know who may be thinking about purchasing these particular speakers. They appear to be very strong and durable little speakers as they have landed on the floor on a couple of occasions during dusting the bookshelves but so far they are still in perfect working order. I also personally like the fact that these speakers are stylish to look at and I think, quite trendy.
If anyone would like to know exact specifics, these are as follows:
Power handling (watts): 200W
Impedance: 8 Ohms
Sensitivity (2.83V @ 1m): 87dB
Frequency Response: 80Hz - 20kHz
High-Frequency Driver: ½" (1.3cm) laminate dome tweeters
Low-Frequency Driver: 5 ¼" (13cm) bass/midrange poly-laminate cones
Weight: 5.2 lb (2.4kg)
I was personally amazed at how simple and easy these speakers were to connect and use for the first time and I have used them with my computer, my personal portable listening devices and also my stereo. They are really good all rounders.
I personally cannot fault these speakers at all and I beleive that for the money I have paid I have received a quality gadget which I am very happy to recommend.
